A - Dark, opaque, slight hint of brown-red highlights, trim tan head, quite to fade, leaving a bit of tan on the rim, but no real lacing.

S - Roast grains and malts, a whiff of grassy hops.

T - Following the nose, with a hint of coffee and a bit of bittersweet chocolate, bitter bit at the close suggests toast and coffee acidity.

M - Moderate coating, a bit of drying, a touch light overall.

O - A decent, but by no means spectacular, oatmeal stout. There are other options I prefer, but this is a good medium ABV, light bodied stout.

This has a nice dark pour with a brown head to it. Immediately I could pick up the aromas of chocolate and coffee. The taste was very strong, tasted of roasted malts and coffee with hints of chocolate. The finish was a little on the bitter and smoky side. Left my mouth feeling a little dry. Not a bad brew, but I prefer others in the Dark Horse series.

12oz bottle poured into stout chalice. Black and opaque with a two finger tan head that leaves a little lacing. Aroma is molasses, cocoa, coffee, and roasted malt. Taste is bittersweet chocolate, coffee, malt, and chicory bitterness. Medium body, thin texture, lively carbonation for a stout, and an astringent finish.
